Falsehoods are created for other reasons too. 0 Reply Matt 10 years ago child, sometimes parent. love is the law, love under Will 0 Reply I got you babe. 10 years ago No. That is only what someone ‘said.’ They were simply stating their opinion – their philosophical view. That doesn’t make it a National Fact. 🙂 His, or her, idea of falsehood is the ‘child’ of fear “to him or her only.” Falsehood is merely falsehood, all by itself, fear has nothing to do with it in my opionion. Unless the individual is afraid of learning the Truth and wishes to cover it up with falsehood. 🙂 Truth shouldn’t be at all frightening but comforting… If something is false, why should it scare or frighten me? Learn from it and move on. People who are lead by the imaginations of others is what frightens me! (Not you personally). 🙂 Beware of “them.” 🙂 0 Reply thejanith 10 years ago No. Falsehood is a child of sin. Falsehood can also come from an unharnessed imagination, from a desire to cause harm to others, and from other reasons. It is not always an act of self-preservation. Anytime one chooses not to tell the truth, it is sin. 0 Reply Geoff 10 years ago I believe you are right about this! 0 Reply Kiely 10 years ago Completely disagree with you on this. 0 Reply Kathy 10 years ago Certainly agree with you here 0 Reply Related Anyone have experience with migraines that cause you to see visual distubances? what is the reason and use of auras?
